Default Broncos approaching free agency 2013

RB Correll Buckhalter
WR Brandon Stokley
OT Ryan Clady
C Dan Koppen
DL Justin Bannan
DL Ty Warren
CB Tracy Porter

Looks like Clady is the only one of major concern or cost. All others will be dropped or cheaply resigned. I think we lose Buckhalter (duh), Warren and Porter. We resign the rest to short deals with Clady getting a monster contract.

For a list of who else might be on the market: http://www.kffl.com/static/nfl/featu...By+Team&y=2013

I think Clady's the only one kept... potentially Koppen.

We'll have to look at new deals for surprise players that have earned bigger paydays like Woodyard, Harris, Carter, etc

Correll Buckhalter?!

Clady gets resigned... Stokely if he wants to stick around another year.

Porter is probably gone with Harris and Carter emerging as they have this year.

Find it hard to care too much right now though. We're in a Superbowl hunt right now, the offseason can wait!

This. Teams that suck are talking about this stuff cause their seasons are done. Good thought at looking forward but it's time for a 2nd seed run

...Clearly if us fans take our eyes off seeding over the next few weeks to discuss something that isn't redundant as ****, the team will blow it's opportunity.

I'm actually interested in free agent RB's and ILB's. Any ideas on who will be available?

So, is it safe to assume that there was something to the rumor that Porter was disgruntled about something

Erin Henderson would be interesting to kick the tires on, but I'd guess Minnesota extends/resigns him.

Reggie Bush would probably be an ideal back for a Manning offense if his value has depreciated enough over the years to be reasonably priced. I think Felix Jones would be similarly interesting in the same regard.

My favorite potential target is Henry Melton from Chicago.

If he hits the market, I think we should back the brinks truck up to his doorstep with Peyton in the drivers seat and Elway riding shotgun.

I think this is the guy I hadn't even heard of two weeks ago. King of embrassing considering how much time I waste on football...

In other news, has anyone kept up with whoever that Balt. backup MLB from last offseason or the one before? Has he gone on to do anything? I think by the time he signed, everyone on the site had been convinced he was the key to the SB but the front office dropped the ball. I don't think I've heard anything since he signed.

Missing from the list:

Matt Willis, David Bruton, Keith Brooking, Jim Leonhard, CJ Davis and Sealver Siliga.

RFAs: Lance Ball, Tony Carter, Chris Clark, Britton Colquitt, Chris Gronkowski, Mitch Unrein and Kevin Vickerson.

DJ Williams supposedly redid his deal when he came back from suspension, but no details have been released and he may become a free agent as well - it is not known currently.

Frankly not sure we can afford Clady, unless he gives is a super bowl ring discount.

The worst case is he is franchised while we train a newbie OLT.

The position is not the hot spot money wise it used to be. With the advent of hot reads and 3 step drops few DEs can get back there fast enough to cause issues.

For that matter he has allowed quite a few hurries over the past few games.

I'm sure Chicago would be willing to take him off our hands.

Considering the other options on the roster, I think I'd rather just lock him up and move forward. Even if there's some slight overpayment, a position that you can check off and forget about is more important than trying to finagle.

Yeah, that guy. He was supposed to be the man. I haven't heard much about him.

Manning has time to go deep bc of Clady. He is as valuable on offense as anyone other than Manning. Probably the third most valuable player on the team!
